Abstract

The relationship between the Benton tests of finger localization and the Kinsbourne-Warrington tests of finger differentiation and order was investigated. Kinsbourne and Warrington have stated that "finger sense" as tested by their tests and "finger localization" as tested by Benton's tests "cannot be closely compared.'' This hypothesis was tested by giving both tests to 31 mentally retarded subjects. There was a high significant correlation between the two tests. The findings do not support Kinsbourne and Warrington's hypothesis and suggest that it is not necessary to distinguish between "finger sense" and "finger localization.''
